Charlie Reese (h/t Battlefield USA – Still Think This Is Funny?) is wrong though he makes a really good case that "only 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country."
There are 227 million (I left the 73 million under 18’s out) human beings who are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
227 million people allowed our country to get where it is today by their/our inattention to what the 545 were doing. It’s as simple as that. The buck stops here, with the American people, nowhere else, and until we understand that, there is no possibility of a cure for the cancer eating at this nation on every front.
Charlie Reese was addressing the domestic. Our foreign problems? The numbers remain the same.
Out of fear, weakness, sloth, fatigue (YOU define) 227 million people – those we proudly call WE, THE PEOPLE – have become WE, THE ENABLERS. Our voices are all but irrelevant. With our silence and our dollars, we are supporting THIS man (GRAPHIC) in Syria, THIS future, THIS degradation, THIS continued erosion of our privacy.
It is always easier to blame someone else. It is especially easy to blame a politician, and that is exactly what they (laughing at us once again) want us to do. Because if we looked the truth in the mirror, some portion, maybe a large portion of that 227 million just might decide we have to do something about it now, not in 2016 when it will be too late.
Was Eric Holder right? Are we a nation of cowards? Are WE, THE PEOPLE, any longer capable, more importantly willing to make this kind of statement?
